This was another one of those nights where things just didn’t quite go as planned. The recipe was Roasted Pork Loin with Parsley-Shallot Sauce from the always wonderful cookbook, The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger. I had made this recipe before and it is really yummy. When I was getting ready to make dinner I realized I didn’t have any parsley or shallots, so there goes the sauce.  I decided to cut the pork loin into pork chops, and sorta followed the recipe from there. Here is what I did…..

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp olive oil

2 tsp finely chopped fresh sage

2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary

2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme

1/8 tsp black pepper

2 boneless pork chops

Mash the garlic and salt together to form a paste, transfer to a small bowl and combine with the olive oil, herbs and pepper. Rub the paste all over the pork chops.

Transfer the pork chops to a roasting pan and roast until 155F (about 20 minutes, depending on how thick the chops are). 

The pork was still really yummy even without the parsley shallot sauce. I served this with some kale sautéed with garlic, some roasted sweet potatoes and roasted butternut squash.
